This book discusses the major clinical features of the antiphospholipid syndrome. It provides a quick, practical and reader-friendly reference for the different problems that might be encountered in clinical practice. Treatment is a major concern in an area where evidence-based medicine is sparse and there are chapters dedicated to diagnosis from a laboratory point of view. Further chapters focus on subjects including pregnancy management, arterial thrombosis and prognosis. Due to the multi-disciplinary nature of this disease, the primary readership groups are general and internal medicine physicians and sub-specialties, including rheumatologists, hematologists, cardiovascular physicians, and obstetricians, among others.
